Re: tiredand scared
Hi, I just finished 34 treatments of aggressive radiation for breakthrough out of the uterus and into 2 lymph nodes. It was very rough, after the first treatment when they told me I wouldn't need medication for nausea, I went home and threw up for hours till my sisters took me to the hospital and I got some medication. I was nauseated the whole 6 weeks. The burns were bad and where there was hair on my body it was gone. They want to do chemo on me and I told them absolutly not, it is a poison and if I want poisoned I can think of better ways.
About the not eating, After the treatment from the radiation began I started losing my appetite. Nothing tasted any good anymore. I lost a total of 22 lbs. , but I had it to lose. I would ask him what he wants to do. If he wants to go do the radiation he should. If not, it is his choice and you should let him gather his strength for what ever decision he makes. I don't know what my chances are right now, I haven't had follow up cat scan yet, so it is scary for me and everyone that has to face this. The fatigue is part of the radiation and chemo. I slept all the time to. I was so tired. I have no energy yet and I have been done with radiation for 2 weeks. I have a husband that helps me part time when he feels like it. Most of the time not. He gives me 2 pieces of toast in the morning and once in awhile took me to treatment because my daughter said he should stand up. I think he feels if I am tough that I will be well by next week. Love him and tell him over and over that you always will and he will appreciate that more and more. I asked my husband if he wanted me to fight and he said well, I don't want to lose you. Ha ha, who would answer the phone and get everything else done for him. You are doing the right thing by trying to get him to eat a little every so often. Keep doing that. I also got dehydated and I still am, no matter how much I drink. I hope I have helped you a little. God Bless you and your husband. santee245
